Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

chocolate mocha cookies

nigella lawson has a great recipe for chocolate cookies.  i modified her chocolate mint cookies by using another flavored cocoa this time.  i chose to use a ghiradelli chocolate mocha flavored cocoa and these cookies were quite tasty.
preheat the oven to 350 degrees
cream 3/4 cup of light brown sugar with 1/2 cup of soft butter.  add one egg and 1 tsp vanilla extract.  then mix the dry ingredients together.  ( 1/3 cup baking cocoa, 1/2 tsp baking powder, and 1 cup flour)  slowly add these to the mixer to incorporate.  then stir in 1 cup of bittersweet chocolate chips.

these cookies can be glazed, but i chose to serve them without the glaze this week. bake for 12 minutes and allow to cool.
